The baked produce comprises bread rolls, loaves, cakes and confectionery and there is a production facility for savouries although these are currently bought in and baked off.

The delivery rounds are operated single-handedly and each van has a specific territory visiting local retail parks, industrial estates and office blocks. The vans are fully fitted and equipped to provide hot and cold drinks and snacks and are able to offer a broad range of products.
